Apperance is dark cocoa brown with tan head. Aroma features strong roasted malts countered by refreshing minty notes with an undercurrent of cacao. Taste is like mint chocolate ice cream with heavy roast and moderate bitterness. The mint works well in this brew... the other mint beer I have had are either toothpaste flavored or the mint takes on an herbal vegetal tone... this mint is bright and pairs nicely with the chocolate. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Overall very nice-- look forward to trying the barrel aged version.

The color is a dark brown that lightens up quite a bit on the surface and edges. The head is dense and cinnamon colored.

Ha. It smells just like mint chocolate chip. The mint is a green fresh leaf smell. There's not a lot of depth, but let's call it for what it is.

The mint is a little overpowering in the flavor, but its still a damn good beer even if it is a little gimmicky. Mint and chocolate flavors with a light roast.

Mouthfeel is smooth, heavy, light carbonation.

I can see this as a highly polarizing beer. If you like mint and chocolate then give it a try. If not, pass.
